“You go, Glen Coco!” Sorry, we just got a little carried away with our excitement over a Mean Girls reunion. That’s right, the 2004 film’s stars Lindsay Lohan (Cady Heron) and Daniel Franzese (Damian) met up in NYC this week, and it’s almost like no time has passed at all — even though it’s been nearly a decade. Yikes!
Lilo, who has been shacking up in the Big Apple for some time now while filming her reality series for OWN, went out to dinner with her old pal in the city last night (February 5), and the two took a photo to commemorate the momentous occasion.
“@whatsupdanny #soquiche #werknyc” Lindsay captions the photo of the two looking absolutely fabulous together. Seriously, Daniel, 35, seems to be aging like fine wine — and we dig the beard! And we’ve been pretty vocal about how back to her old self Lindsay has been looking recently — she could almost step back onto the Mean Girls set right now, like no time has passed.
Daniel loved the pic just as much as we did, regramming it on his own account, with the caption: “Sexy #regram from @lindsaylohan a Classic NYC moment after an amazing dinner at #BodegaNegra You can't sit with us! (pic by @brandonmarked).” Aww, we love that even they still quote the movie!
Speaking of Mean Girls, just this week the film’s director Mark Waters did a retrospective in honor of its 10-year legacy. The most shocking revelation (in our opinion) was that Lindsay was originally intended for the Regina George role, which ultimately went to Rachel McAdams.
"[Lindsay’s] energy is a very aggressive, testosterone-laden energy, and that's exactly what I knew I needed for Regina George," he spilled to Vulture. "When I gave it to her, she was like, 'I f—king love Regina George! This is exactly the part I want to play.'"
Of course, Lindsay eventually went for the role of protagonist Cady Heron, and Rachel stepped in for Regina… and movie history was made! To date, Mean Girls has raked in over $129 million worldwide.
